Rating: 3.5/5 -- A good, old-fashioned war movie, the kind of movie you watch with your dad on a Saturday afternoon. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- Though largely fictionalized, this is a moving report of the defense of the Pacific Island base, with strong emphasis on the heroic gallantry of three Manrines, played by Robert Preston, Brian Donlevy, and William Bendix. Full Review
Sep 21, 2006
Rating: 6/10 -- It's fairly exciting action cinema... [that] falls apart on the generally anemic, one-note characterisations and the lack of any particularly memorable performance. Full Review
